With the arrival of Winter in Pleasanton, you may be more aware than ever of how much your windows contribute to the chill that is in your home—especially at night or on windy days. All you have to do is stand next to one of your old windows, and you feel noticeably colder. You crank up your home’s heater, but all the while, you are thinking about how much your next energy bill will be.
If this is an experience you have every winter, it may be time to look into replacing the windows in your home. But don’t just replace them with any windows—replace them with ones that are designed for energy efficiency.
Simonton Madeira and DaylightMax Windows for Pleasanton Homes
One of the brands we offer to our Pleasanton customers is Simonton windows and doors. Custom Exchange is an authorized dealer of both the Madeira and DaylightMax lines of Simonton products. The windows in both of these lines have similar features, but a few important differences. Both come with low-e glass and an argon fill between the two panes of glass. Their frames have fusion-welded corners for strength and durability.
When it comes to differences between the two lines of Simonton windows, the most important one is that the DaylightMax windows come with a narrower frame, and therefore a larger glass area, than the Madeira windows. This is a great feature for homeowners who want to maximize their view of the outdoors and allow in more natural light. However, there is a bit of a trade-off, since a larger glass area makes the windows slightly less energy efficient than a Madeira window of the same style and size. However, Simonton’s DaylightMax windows are still extremely energy efficient and a great choice for Pleasanton homes.
Which Simonton Line to Choose for Your Pleasanton Home
If you currently have windows with aluminum frames and want to replace them with windows that look similar, DaylightMax windows would definitely be the way to go. This line of Simonton windows is also a great choice for more modern or midcentury modern homes. Madeira windows, on the other hand, more closely resemble the style of wood windows, with thicker, classic-looking frames, making them a better choice for homes with a traditional look and feel.
It really comes down to personal preference, since both lines of windows look great once installed. If you need help deciding, a representative from Custom Exchange can help you weigh the pros and cons at your in-home appointment.
Both lines come with the amazing Simonton warranty, which is a Limited Lifetime Warranty, that covers your windows for as long as you own your home.
